Cool watery skies. Love it.
The lone shocking pink shophouse adds a splash of interesting.
A bit of history. The National Aerated Water Company was founded in 1929. The company introduced Sinalco which happens to be my mum’s favourite drink. I didn’t know that it was a fizzy drink from then West Germany. In 1952 the company obtained exclusive rights to bottle and distribute it in Malaya and Singapore.
RIght now it’s a very cool looking, unused factory. They really should turn this place into a museum of sorts. A museum of bottled drinks from the 50’s and 60’s would be just wonderful, don’t you think?
Is this what they mean by increasing productivity? Use of machinery to make jobs more productive? But then the cleaners who don’t know how to drive would be out of a job. If only they could provide those same workers subsidized retraining instead. Won’t they then be displaced totally? I wonder what becomes of them. I did see some workers with leaf blowers – maybe they do that instead. Blowing all the leaves into piles instead of cumbersome sweeping, which the machine can then suck up.
I liked the contrast of the yellow of the flats against the deep green of our tropical trees.
